Holdays are coming… holidays are coming…

Well, this Christmas is already turning out to be one of the best I’ve ever had – starting with an amazing visit from the Holidays Are Coming Coca-Cola truck to the nearby town. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the event announced in the local newspaper (I actually jumped up and down & squealed a bit) and I quickly fired off a text to everyone nearby to let them know the awesome news!

For me, and for many of my friends and family, Christmas only truly begins when the first showing of the Coca-Cola advert comes on the telly. As soon as that line of lit-up cola trucks starts snaking its way across my screen you can bet that I (and everyone else) will be texting, tweeting and facbooking to announce that we’ve seen it and that Chriiiiiistmas is comiiiing!! That advert has pretty much become a Christmas tradition over the years and the sight of Santa swigging from a bottle of Coca-Cola on the back of the truck is pretty iconic.

This is precisely why I got soooo excited with the news that the Coca-Cola truck was going on tour around the country this year. I organised my whole week around going to see the truck – I was determined not to miss out on such an important festive event. And I was not disappointed – the truck was glowing red with 100s of fairy lights and parked outside Ipswich town hall, with all the town’s amazing Christmas lights on in the background, it looked like a Christmassy oasis in the town centre. There were podiums at each end of the truck to allow families to have photos taken with the truck and a brass band was playing. Of course, there were tons of Santa’s little helpers handing out mini cans of Coke – which I am thinking of turning into decorations for my tree this year!

All in all, it was a fabulous event, with a really magical feel, and was being enjoyed by young and old alike. It felt even more special because I was sharing the experience with my equally Christmas-mad family and my brand new nephew – one day in the future he’ll watch the advert on the telly and we’ll be able to tell him that he saw the Holidays Are Coming truck in real life. So this Christmas is shaping up to be one of the best, and in no small part due to seeing the Holidays Are Coming truck! Check the Coca-Cola website to find out when it’s coming to a town near you – and merry christmas!
